[applause] >> "this is the day," how did this book it started? i say, it was president obama in his first term who said, i am nearer because you all marched. 50 years ago we did, what did i think america was? it was all things to me. my husband home country, my new jewish family, robert and benjamin, leonards cousins, and lots of americans. we came here from amsterdam to photograph the blessed people. i have no photo of myself, of our seven-month stay in america but pictures of her four year old daughter, her grandparents and cousins. leonard was very -- he needed all film for his project. nothing but races he said. i wish i had a picture of myself and of leonard at the march on washington. i only had my eyes. and these eyes looked and looked and looked, i would say, all these faces, and when letter

. that is a question that authorities are wrestling with, while playing catch up with this technology. we look at the complicated question of what to do with drones. >> the skies across america could soon be welcoming more drones. the faa is seeking proposals from cities, states and universities to create six test sites for unmanned aircraft systems. the sites will allow them to develop safety standards that will allow drones to be fully integrated into the national air space by 2015. the drone industry said they make good economic sense. in the next three years after the faa figured out integration, we could see 70,000 jobs be created in the industry. >> the coast guard uses drones for surveillance on ice sheets in alaska and others were used during a border dispute. they will be monitoring pipelines by energy companies and by familiarers to monitor crops. new uses will need new rules to protect privacy. >> we do not want drones to be eyes in the sky spying on us. we need controls so that drones are only used when we have -- we believe a crime is happening or we are trying to do something par
interested in this issue. specifically, we hope to gain a better understanding of the risk, the technology obstacles, and key research and development efforts being undertaken to overcome the obstacles. uas has garnered a great deal of attention lately. in fact, if you watched the news this morning, there's a lot of -- lot of news about this issue. in january, pbs's "nov a" had a documentary called "rise of the drones," and last week's "time" magazine cover carried the same title, and, of course, the administration's use of drones for targeting terrorists to con cronet our war on terrorism has come to be a central issue in the confirmation hearing of the proposed cia directer, the nominee, john brennan. however, privacy issues and military applications of uas beyond the scope of this hearing. i use the term "unmanned aircraft systems" or usa instead of uas or drones because it is a more complete term. uas are complex systems made up of not just aircraft, but as well as supporting ground, air, and communications infrastructure. uas comes in a variety of shapes and sizes and carries out a wi
of which is the technological revolution that we've undergone over the last 20 years. >> host: professor, have we lost important gatekeepers of news, in your view? >> guest: i think that is one of the central themes of the book which is that we now live in a world that we call somewhat nerdily multiaxialty. what we mean by that term is really pretty simple which is the ways in which information can become public information and paid attention to by a lot of people is much more fluid, there are many more gates than there used to be. you could argue that you don't even need gates because the walls have come down. so where we get information from, what becomes newsworthy or important, what goes viral is very, very different from what used to be the case. in the period just prior to this era. but the other larger point we're trying to make is that we can't just compare what we have now to what preceded it the 50 years of broadcast news. if you look more historically, we've actually had four or five different media regimes as we call them in which the relationship between the media, citizens

are still without a plan that was originally envisioned. arizona border's technology development remains in question. according to the jo, the department does not have the information necessary to support the estimated $1.5 billion plan, which is the successor to the council's multibillion-dollar fbi net. the department has not demonstrated the effectiveness in deploying surveillance technology. the jo also found that $1.5 billion cost estimate may not be reliable. if this new plan goes awry, the department will have spent over two billion dollars in an attempt to develop technology with little more to show them cancel programs and canceled checks the contractors. this is but one example why the department must go through this acquisition system, to improve how it does its job analysis and make sure we have a better way of purchasing technology. the new administration has made some improvement, the newly created accountability and risk- management designed to manage the oversight acquisition program appears to be a step in the right direction. i am concerned only 45 staff in this office
, the department of homeland security announced its plan to install technology along the southwest border that would serve as a virtual fence and provide a border patrol with information it needs to secure the border. unbelievably, the contract that allowed the project to go forward did so specifically prohibiting border patrol agents, those who work on the ground, from providing input to the design, develop, implementation of that system. that's unacceptable. seven years and over $1 billion later we're still without the plan that was originally envisioned, and subsequent, the arizona border surveillance technology program remains in question. according to the gao, the department does not have the information necessary to support and implement the estimated $1.5 billion plan which is the successor to the council -- counseled multibillion-dollar sbinet. in addition to find the department hasn't yet damaged the effectiveness and suitability of its new approach for deploying surveillance technology, the gao also found that $1.5 billion, ten-year cost as for for the program, may not be reliab
